Clyde River Cottage

Your hosts – Peter and Wendy

Both are keen and independent travellers who are always on the lookout for special places in great locations. They believe the Clyde River Cottage is the type of place they seek worldwide.

Previous to being at Nelligen, they owned and managed a holiday park set in the heart of the Murramarang National Park and Batemans Marine Park.

Both enjoy kayaking on the Clyde River – right at their doorstep. Bushwalking in the surrounding National Parks or searching for the perfect cappuccino are other pursuits.

Peter is a licensed microlight and ultralight pilot. He can occasionally be seen flying over the Clyde River Cottage. His other flying passion was as a commercial hot air balloon pilot. 

Both are keen distance runners.  Peter has 25 marathons under his belt. Wendy completed her first Marathon in Medellin, Colombia Just before she turned 60!

Travel is their primary passion and they have visited over 50 countries. Favourites include Nepal, India, Sri Lanka, Georgia, France, Poland,   Colombia and Myanmar. Peter explored many of these when he was involved in the management of one of the worlds largest adventure travel companies. Recent travels saw Wendy complete her 2nd trek to Everest Base Camp whilst Peter drove a tuk tuk across India.

When travelling, their preferred accommodation is small establishments such as AirBnbs, hostels, home stays and the like. They picked up many ideas on how to make the Clyde River Cottage the best it could be.

As well as being  guests at hundreds of places throughout the world, they have hosted thousands of guests from across the world for the pas 17 years. The Clyde River Cottage has been visited by over 700 guests. Guest satisfaction has been excellent. Peter and Wendy have been AirBnb Superhosts continuously for over 4 years.

Peter and Wendy look forward to having you stay with them and being able to share why they love this part of Australia so much. They look forward to sharing their special place.

Ellie is the other resident at the Clyde River Cottage. A mini Schnauzer who is very friendly and always keen for a walk.
